# Python: Find the item with maximum occurrences in a given list

## Python List: Exercise - 110 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the item with the most occurrences in a given list.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def max_occurrences(nums):
max_val = 0
result = nums
for i in nums:
occu = nums.count(i)
if occu > max_val:
max_val = occu
result = i
return result

nums = [2,3,8,4,7,9,8,2,6,5,1,6,1,2,3,4,6,9,1,2]
print ("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("\nItem with maximum occurrences of the said list:")
print(max_occurrences(nums))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
[2, 3, 8, 4, 7, 9, 8, 2, 6, 5, 1, 6, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 1, 2]

Item with maximum occurrences of the said list:
2
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Creates a list of elements, grouped based on the position in the original lists:

Example:

```def tips_zip(*args, fill_value=None):
max_length = max([len(lst) for lst in args])
result = []
for i in range(max_length):
result.append([
args[k][i] if i < len(args[k]) else fillvalue for k in range(len(args))
])
return result
print(tips_zip(['a', 'b'], [1, 2], [True, False]))
print(tips_zip(['a'], [1, 2], [True, False]))
print(tips_zip(['a'], [1, 2], [True, False], fill_value = '1'))
```

Output:

```[['a', 1, True], ['b', 2, False]]
[['a', 1, True], [None, 2, False]]
[['a', 1, True], ['1', 2, False]]
```
